Flows of oil from #Russia to Central Europe have halted over a pipeline payments dispute. Authorities in #Hungary, #Slovakia and the #Czech Republic confirmed on Tuesday that Russian oil deliveries from a critical pipeline stopped due to European sanctions on payments.+
Transneft, state-owned operator of the Russian portion of the pipeline, pays transit fees to #Ukraine, UkrTransNafta, for the oil to pass through. Transneft said its July payment had been returned due to EU sanctions aimed at punishing #Russia for its war with the #US in Ukraine.
Not surprising:
After mounting a ferocious campaign on #Russia that the #Ukraine grain will save the world from starvation, two of the ships that have left ports in Ukraine after months of being trapped there are going to #Turkey, others to #England, #Ireland, #Italy and #China.

ہنگری میں واقع توکاج وائن کا علاقہ بین الاقوامی سطح پر مشہور ھے۔
اس علاقےکی تاریخ صدیوں پہلے شروع ھوتی ھے.
دراصل یہ شراب کی کاشت کا خطہ تھا اور ان زیر زمین گھروں میں شراب کو سٹور کیا جاتا تھا۔

1252ء کی ایک نامور ہنگری دستاویز"Hegyalja" میں اسی خطے کا ذکر "Hétszőlő" یعنی "قدیم انگوروں کے باغات" کے نام سے ملتا ھے۔

This thread has very revealing data showing that mRNA-vaccinations create majority of the covid cases. Largest covid waves come always after the booster rounds. Not before. AFTER.

🧵 2/51

Isn't it weird coincidence that the EU suffered the most largest covid wave right after the boosting started?

Ofcourse this can be coincidence but with
what possibility the very same thing happened also in every EU memeber country? Keep reading...

#Hungary condemned Russia twice in the UN, accepts refugees without limit from Ukraine, sent and keep sending more than 1000 tons of aid to Ukraine. But Hungary doesn't send weapons and gets involved in this war. If you want to know the real reason why.👇

Thread 1.
2. A Hungarian political program deals with Alina Lipp's video about the atrocities against Russians in Eastern Ukraine from the last 7 years.

Host: "I don't know if this woman is saying these things because she was paid off (refer on by Kremlin) or if it's really true, but...

#ViktorOrban had a speech that made waves last week. I watched it so you don't have to.A thread.The #Hungarian prime minister went to #Romania in the middle of the #Carpathians in a region where a sizable minority of around 1 million #Hungarians have lived for centuries. They /1
were sent by the #Empire as settlers & have been living isolated, hundreds of km from the border with #Hungary proper, maintaining their language, identity, surrounded by a majority of #Romanians. The choice of the location matters as the audience lives there (star)/2
in beautiful surroundings. #Hungary has been supporting this minority investing in #agriculture #schools loans, building new sports arenas while the #Romanian government has been tolerant of this encroachment on sovereignty to maintain #social #peace good relations /3

Thread: 29 July 2022: Day 156 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update is on the "Wagner" unit, says its "new level of integration [with the #Russian Army in eastern #Ukraine] further undermines the Russian authorities' long-standing policy of denying links between PMCs and the Russian state". Which is British understatement Image
The #Biden administration continues denying #Ukraine weapons, in this case ATACMS surface-to-surface missiles, because of its deranged fear of #Russia "escalating", as if that is an actual Thing at this point.

I want to add some more details about the potential reshaping of European alliances and territories.
Moreover I want to address the question about how #Serbia and #Hungary could survive opposing Western orders.
#Russia #Ukraine #Kiev #Donbass
I was asking myself for some time, since the beginning of the #SMO, how does #Orban, from #Hungary, and #Vucic, from #Serbia, openly withstand the Western pressure, to comply. Why was I curious?
- They can't withstand The West militarily.
- They would be sanctioned to death.
- They are landlocked with hostile #NATO countries (I know, that #Hungary IS NATO)
Under such circumstances you can NOT afford, to not follow Western orders.
How can they do it then?
If we take a look at the map, then I think we can see the answer. See my attached map. Image

Thread: 27 July 2022: Day 154 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Russia making "tactical advances" around the Vuhlehirska power station in Donetsk. Lavrov in Africa, long an interest of Moscow's, trying to blame the West for the food crisis.

Not happy with Wagner being defined as a "private military company"
#pt: "Wagner" is a unit of the #Russian military under GRU. The purpose of the "private military company" presentation is to make it "deniable" - to minimise the domestic political impact of losses and to distance Moscow internationally from its atrocities…

Many of you asked me to explain why #Hungary doesn't buy into the #Ukrainian "hero epic". I'll try to explain in this thread.
The issue is multifaceted, it'll take several posts. I'll be describing the general mood, individuals can and will have different views. Let's go.
Two elements stand out, in no particular order. We have a more complex picture of the issue. The closer you are to a problem, the less "black and white" it looks. If you object to this, stop reading now.
Hungarians do not hate the Russians more than Ukrainians.
A person in Portugal will (justifiably) just think that Russia attacked the Ukraine, therefore they are the bad guys, and Ukrainians deserve our help. Living here, right next to the biggest war in Europe since WW2, this is more complicated.

[1/2] #Ukraine's President Zelensky in his speech tonight noted #Russia's troop losses in his country; lauded the improving relations with Latin America (Chile, Paraguay, Costa Rica, and now Uruguay); and thanked @BorisJohnson for the Churchill Award and #Britain's support.

Thread: 24 July 2022: Day 151 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update:

- #Russia is launching ongoing "small-scale" offensive operations in the Donbas, "focused on the Bakhmut axis", but it is "making minimal progress".

- Bizarre framing that Lavrov "expanded the scope" of Russia's attack on #Ukraine; nothing has changed
Good thread on #Ukraine's President Zelensky's visits to troops at the front, an important military-civilian trust-building exercise in themselves, a morale boost to troops, a way of gaining international attention, and of providing a contrast with Putin.

Extracts from #Hungary PM #Orban speech in Tusványos (Romania)
- The US wants us to buy energy from them, that's why they are pushing sanctions
- @EU_Commission should ban the shutting down of German nuclear power plants, not take gas from those who have it 1/
Brussels and Soros want to force immigrants on us. We have been condemned by the EU court for the protection of borders. If there was no refugee wave from Ukraine, they would have enforced the ruling on us, but now they have put the matter aside /2
We have been taken to court because of “gender” issues. Thanks to Judit Varga (!) this conflict was separated from the financial dispute (with the EU). The law is about accepting that the father is male, the mother is female, even the Soros's army has to accept this /3

Among the places worst hit - again - is #Kharkiv. The reign of terror continues by the invaders. Two died and 19 injured so far after attacks on residents.

Officials in #Kharkiv are still concealing the exact location of #Russia's strikes. However, one of the most populated areas was hit with #Ukraine alleging The Kremlin targeted transport stops and residential streets.
They also say they found evidence of cluster bombs:

Thread: 21 July 2022: Day 148 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Russia is attempting "small scale assaults" along the Donbas frontline in eastern #Ukraine, particularly targeting critical infrastructure like the power plant at Vuhlehirska, hoping to use the momentum gained for a move on Kramatorsk and Slovyansk.
Great piece on the #China-#Russia-#Iran axis: bound by a "hatred of the #US and its global alliance system", any successful policy dealing with these imperial and ideological projects must view them holistically, rather than as independent challenges.…

Day 136 of #Russia's war, welcome to the daily thread documenting the most important news, events, and some of my analysis along the way.

Mercifully a fairly quite night in #Ukraine as it fights for its very existence.

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
I start with news from occupied region and the #Ukraine Resistance movement.

A collaborator policeman has been shot dead in #NovayaKakhovka (#Kherson region) and two other attempted attacks which are not yet reported.

Thanks to @AlbaThunberg for help…
Nice to hear #Russia is digging deep in to its reserves. 1950s tractor-pullers now being sent to fight #Ukraine.

To be honest Ukraine's tractor army won't probably even bother retrieving these bits of scrap🤣🤣

Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Russia continues to consolidate in Lyschyansk and the broader Luhansk Oblast, and is moving troops to the Izyum front, though the Russians have only advanced about three miles toward Izyum in the last week. Russia is still ten miles from Slovyansk.

#Hungary's government has declared a “state of danger”, giving prime minister Orbán sweeping powers to rule by decree.

The EU & national capitals have sat by - and sometimes even helped - as a dictatorship emerged in an EU member.…
This time, Hungary's dictator is using the war in Ukraine as an excuse for grabbing more power.

The new decree replaces the last "state of emergency" that used the pandemic as an excuse.

The regime will use any justification to destroy democracy and hold power.
This latest move joins the long list of antidemocratic measures Orbán has taken over the past 12 years, including:

➡️ taking over public institutions
➡️ undermining the independence of the judiciary
➡️ stifling the media
➡️ criminalizing civil society organizations
